Writer, songwriter, musician, and former member of the band Wall of Voodoo talks about the creative process; about pitching shows to Hollywood; about writing books vs. writing music; and about riding in an ancient steam-powered car with Jay Leno. He also gives us the background of how he became involved with Wall of Voodoo (great story, by the way!) and asks us what the deal is about absinthe. Because, you know, we had to tie this in with absinthe somehow. More about Andy and his latest EP can be found at AndyPrieboy.com
We are drinking absinthe during every episode and this one is no exception. Some of the alcohol-inspired confessions included here: neither Dan or Jerry feel like they’re adults. In day-to-day dealings with “
Music at the end was by Jim’s Big Ego.
We couldn’t decide whether to call this episode “We see drunk people,” or “Hairy Man Cleavage.” We went with the one that wasn’t quite as disgusting. Featured in this episode is music by Jim’s Big Ego (check them out at bigego.com) (and also check out the fact that Jim has a great science fiction book out called The Wakeful Wanderer‘s Guide to New New England & Beyond). We also talk about absinthe, while we’re drinking absinthe. Of course. Which is why we keep getting our wrong in the words order.
Oh, and this:
As the evil girl scout says, “Next time just buy the damn cookies.” Music featured in this episode is the awesome song, “We Are Hearty Drinking Men” by Andy Prieboy who (spoiler alert) will end up being a guest on a future episode.
Drinks covered in this episode are Absinthe Dew’d, Redeye, and Mean Leprechaun. Also featured is the Molly Lewis song “Peep Fight,” and the burning question: what is more romantic, a Winnebago or a mule? Speaking of burning … what if there was a Disney Hell theme park? And also we discuss the idea of replacing “Political Correctness” with “Political Kindness.” And, just for good measure, we talk about panning for gold in a river of Goldschlager. Thank you to Molly for letting us feature her song!
Hello listeners in the future! Dan makes a prediction from 2011 about 2020 … tune in to see how accurate it is (or isn’t) turning out to be. Also we talk a lot about absinthe and creativity, automated razor blades for your head, Dita Von Teese pouring liquids on herself, Jennifer Anniston’s (now ancient) fake sex tape, and how men and/or women can use the techniques from the old movie The Tau of Steve to seduce each other. Santé!
Hello future people! We’re broadcasting this episode from the not-so-distant past of March 12, 2019, and discussions range from the band “Ghost,” to Wake Brewing in Rock Island, Illinois, to doom metal, to Jerry’s new puppy who looks like it should be a Klingon dog but actually has the personality of an Ewok. There’s also a lot of talk about Dungeons and Dragons, and also some reveals of family secrets. Also we reveal how much Dan’s parents paid to adopt him, verses how much Jerry just paid for a puppy. You may be a bit shocked.
Things mentioned in this episode include:
Hello people in the future! This is Jerry and Dan in the past broadcasting to you through time and space, and probably through some snow and ice as well. We talk about the wonders of caffeinated beer; about how the women in Finland are especially beautiful; and lament on how our buddy Mike McShane isn’t the blockbuster superstar he really deserves to be. We also touch upon online dating; microwaving CDs for some exciting instant artwork; and also how awesome it would be if the Muppets made their own version of Lord of the Rings. Oh, and yes, we also talk about absinthe.
This brand new episode was recorded on March 5th, 2019, celebrating both Fat Tuesday and National Absinthe Day. We’re still in the past broadcasting into your future, but at least now every other episode with
